TR Students Host AVID College Fair
The 175 AVID students at Foothill High School didn't spend all their time in class today. Instead, they hosted a college fair at their school. Approximately 850 students attended, including eighth graders from Foothill Ranch Middle School.
AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. It's a college readiness program designed to help students develop skills they need to be successful in college.
This is the sixth year the Foothill AVID program has hosted a college fair. Students researched 38 colleges and became the experts, providing valuable information to those attending. They even had mascots for each college!
Districtwide, more than 1,000 students are enrolled in AVID.
